Impact of Particle Size, Thermal Processing, Fat Inclusion, and Moisture Addition on Starch Gelatinization of Broiler Feeds

Introduction Starch is stored in plants as granules. The starch granule is a structure composed by crystalline and amorphous regions and, due to the lower order of cristallinity, the gelatinization occurs fir...

Economics of Grinding for Pelleted Feeds

In the feed manufacturing industry, particle size reduction (grinding) is second only to extrusion processes (pelleting, expanders, extruders) in terms of total energy consumption.  To achieve a finer grin...

The perfect pellet: issues and challenges

Introduction The importance of pellet feeding to broilers in improving the growth performance and feed efficiency is no longer questionable (Abdollahi et al., 2013a). On the other hand, the process of making p...

Steam-Pelleting Temperatures, Sorghum Variety and Feed Form Influence Growth Performance, Nutrient Utilisation and Nitrogen Digestability in Broiler Chickens

I. INTRODUCTION Sorghum has a relatively high starch gelatinisation temperature and for this reason sorghum- based broiler diets are often steam-pelleted at high conditioning temperatures to achieve acceptabl...
